#2197584 Ranking NHL Broadcasters

Posted by Kira on 09 July 2011 - 03:18 PM

And how many on that list of so-called "Good announcers" are going to be in the Hall of Fame for their broadcasting talents?

I'll take Ken and Mick over any of those other clowns. Hell, those tools in Nashville can't even pronounce names properly or even identify the players correctly half the time.

#2194594 Jagr signs 1-year deal with the Flyers

Posted by Kira on 01 July 2011 - 05:01 PM

Suckers! Better you than us.

This just might teach Philly to be careful what they wish for. I give him a month before he's whining or injured.

#2188247 Wings unlikely to sign Osgood/Draper

Posted by Kira on 23 June 2011 - 10:55 AM

Okay, let me get this straight in my head. You don't want Ozzie and Drapes back because you think they are too old, but yet you want to sign Jagr??? Excuse me, but isn't that a little hypocritical???

This is a plural "you" by the by...not directed at any one person.

But I don't understand the thinking behind this.

#2188243 The Hottest Red Wing

Posted by Kira on 23 June 2011 - 10:43 AM

Hello gang, we're back from the river - had a great time at Hockeytown with Sheri, her Terry, Yumi and Dawn.

I know this isn't really news for here, but I thought you'd like it. My friend Kathy is a season ticket holder for the Griffins, and they are doing a new promotion this season. They had a drawing and Kathy won - her prize? She gets to drop the first puck at a Griffins game!!!! We plan on being there to watch it. I think that is so cool!

#2186786 Question: Why do Wings fans hate the Canucks?

Posted by Kira on 18 June 2011 - 04:45 PM

It's more a matter of fans being a bunch of arrogant jackasses. Proof in point, rioting after the game the other night. I know a lot of it wasn't real fans of the team, but damn, did you have to go and do that s*** and not only make your city look bad, but hockey fans in general??? I mean, come on, 100 people arrested, 150 taken to hospital for injuries - really, is that what you want people to remember about your team and its fans?

#2180645 SCF: Boston Bruins vs. Vancouver Canucks

Posted by Kira on 28 May 2011 - 12:55 PM

Boston deserves this one. My housemate is in heaven, because she's been a B's fan for eons. I hope they bring it back to an Original Six team again. It's been pretty neat to have an O6 team win two of the last three Cups. Let's hope Boston makes it 3 of 4. GO BRUINS!!!!!

Oh yeah, there is one other thing...bears love to eat fish. :lol:

#2179670 Classiest Players

Posted by Kira on 25 May 2011 - 04:18 PM

Pavel Datsyuk. Class personified. Nick and Gordie Howe come close, but Pasha has more class in his toenails than 99.9% of the league.

#2178970 Very Sad To See

Posted by Kira on 24 May 2011 - 09:08 AM

It's not official with Rafi yet. But it will be an end of an era indeed when these guys hang them up. You can bet we'll not see their likes again.

#2176631 Sharks Accuse Canucks of Diving

Posted by Kira on 17 May 2011 - 08:27 PM

As we used to say when I was a kid, "Takes one to know one."

OR as the more diplomatic version goes, "Only a true professional can spot another one."

#2176004 Jaromir Jagr

Posted by Kira on 15 May 2011 - 08:37 PM

Oh hell no. Run as fast as you can the other way from this one. He'd be about as useful as a screen door on a submarine.

#2175324 2012 Winter Classic, Jan 2.

Posted by Kira on 13 May 2011 - 09:01 PM

I do believe I'll pass on this one again.

And it might be because January 1st is on a Sunday. Though a Monday afternoon doesn't seem like it would draw that much of an audience. Oh well, what do I know?

#2172831 Bow legged?

Posted by Kira on 12 May 2011 - 05:32 AM

You never knew that? He's doubly cursed, by being both bowlegged and pigeon-toed.

But put him on a pair of skates and he's as graceful as can be. Life is full of contradictions, isn't it?

is it this one by any chance?

That's it! You are a gentleman and a scholar. :thumbup:

#2172219 2011 Round 2 Photoshop War: San Jose Sharks

Posted by Kira on 11 May 2011 - 12:40 AM

My housemate found the neatest picture but it won't let me post it here for some reason. It's a picture of an invisible Joe Thornton...absolutely threw us into laughing fits. I wish I could post it here.

#2172154 WCSF Game 6 GDT: Sharks 1 at Red Wings 3

Posted by Kira on 10 May 2011 - 11:17 PM

Whatever happens Thursday night, I am so proud of these guys. They have answered the call and shown what a class bunch they are.

We're grateful to you for such an amazing comeback, and we know you have it in you to go to Vancouver and prove you're not a fluke.

This WILL be history.
